his first network tv interview since the defeat to abc's jonathan karl. >> reporter: how much of a shock was it? >> well, you know -- we thought we had a really good chance of winning. the polling and the data and all the people, the smart people who watch this stuff -- they had a pretty optimistic view on the night. and so going into boston that day, we felt like we had a pretty darn good chance of winning. as you can imagine it was a bit of a shock. when we didn't win. >> reporter: "saturday night live" poked fun at ryan, native of janesville, wisconsin. >> mother sent me to got you, father. paul ryan is doing feats of strength in the drawing room. she thought we would like to see. >> i would like to see him carry wisconsin! >> reporter: the president wins 330-some electoral votes, every battleground state with the exception of north carolina does barack obama now have a mandate? >> i don't think so. because they also re-elected the house republicans. whether people -- intended or not, we have got divided government. >> reporter: you don't think there is a mandate here? >> i
's jonathan karl on that. >> reporter: you think election day is tomorrow? think again. we have already been seeing long lines at voting places for weeks. 46 million americans are expected to vote before polls open tomorrow, more than one out of every three voters, the most early voting ever. this family waited for eight hours to vote in miami. >> you know, this is how we express our voice and this is what makes america the greatest country in the world. >> reporter: with so many states offering early voting, it's no longer election day. it's election month. in the latest abc news/"washington post" poll, obama had a narrow three-point lead among those who voted early. that's a much smaller lead than four years ago when he beat mccain among early voters by 18 points. local officials at this polling place in miami were so overwhelmed by long lines, they temporarily locked the doors triggering chaos outside. >> let us vote. let us vote. >> reporter: doors re-opened after about an hour, and in some counties, democrats successfully sued to extend early voting hours, and well over half of all expe
and not just because the white house is up for grabs so is control of the senate and abc's jonathan karl, our veteran capitol hill correspondent is here and we ask in the three places he'll be watching tonight, the states also voting by the way on some pretty far-ranging things. we'll get to that in a moment. jon. >> that's the other big battle is the battle for control of the u.s. senate so very early in the night i'm going to be looking at two senate seats especially. the first one up in massachusetts, this is scott brown against elizabeth warren. the most expensive race in the country. the most high profile. it has been a bitter race. if republican scott brown loses in massachusetts, the republicans have a much harder time to win control of the senate. the other one also early in the night is going to be in the state of indiana, this is richard mourdock running against donny. they controlled it for 36 years. should have been a slam dunk but he made controversial comments on rape and abortion now it's at risk for republicans. if they lose both of those it will be virtually impossible to win
in this country. >> not only half the country, jonathan karl, but half of caught washington, as well, half of official washington. you have made the point we are coming out of a campaign that probably spent $6 billion in aggregate all to return what looks like the status quo to washington. barack obama to the white house, democrats to the senate. republicans to the house. >> $6 billion campaign that changes virtually nothing. one of the big stories we thought of this election were those huge republican super pacs. they spent republican and republican groups spent over $300 million just on senate races and they have ended up probably losing a net loss of senate losses, come to congress looking almost exactly like it did before this election and i'll tell you, george, this president usually when a president is re-elected you have talks of how much political capital is there, what's the mandate, the second term agenda. a little time to talk about that. he starts tomorrow to face big problems with this congress, this fiscal cliff, taxmageddon, whatever you want to call it by the end of the yea
's jonathan karl covers congress and tells us if the election sent a message to washington, and what kind. >> reporter: from speaker of the house john boehner, to the newly re-elected president, an olive branch. >> mr. president, the republican majority here in the house stands ready to work with you. >> reporter: they better work together. if they don't strike a deal to cut the deficit in just 55 days, by law, we face the so-called fiscal cliff, taxmaggedon, a mix of tax increases and defense spending cuts that would likely plunge the economy back into recession. and give a big tax hike for virtually every family in america starting january 1st. the president has insisted and campaigned on raising tax rates on the wealthy. house republicans campaigned on no tax increases and they won, too. today, from boehner, a hint at a willingness to compromise. >> we want you to succeed. let's challenge ourselves to find the common ground that has eluded us. let's rise above the dysfunction and do the right thing together for our country. >> reporter: the newly elected congress looks almost exactly l
of representatives, john boehner. that was just today and i'm here now with jonathan karl, who has covered the campaign, covers congress for us. what did you hear, jon? >> reporter: he said raising tax rates is unacceptable. let me tell you, there is an entirely different view of that on the other side of the aisle and at the white house. if the president campaigned on one thing, it was raising tax rates on the wealthy. they say any deal that doesn't do that is unacceptable. >> so, what happens next now? i seem to hear the speaker saying, you know, we can talk -- >> reporter: you did. and he also wanted to reassure everybody, including the markets, that a deal will be done. we're not going to get to the brink. we're not going to get to the point where the credit rating of the country is again at risk. he said he's willing to talk about anything and he called himself the most reasonable man in washington. so, i think that he is determined to get something done. >> okay, jon karl, thank you. >>> and now, we're going to turn to the other big story of this day. it is the second storm moving in
i was in the first. jonathan karl. >> thank you, mr. president. senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said today they want to have watergate style hearings on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi and said if you nominate susan rice to be secretary of state they will do everything in their power to block her nomination as senator graham said he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. would those threats deter you from making a nomination like that? >> first of all, i'm not going to comment at this point on various nominations i'll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the second term. those are things that are still being discussed. let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house. in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and s
that ended his career, but the main topic, that attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. and abc's jonathan karl has the drama today. >> reporter: this afternoon, the first glimpse of david petraeus since he resigned as cia director. earlier, behind closed doors on capitol hill, petraeus began by expressing regret for the affair that ended his career. other than that ten-second apology, the hearings focused entirely on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, that killed four americans. petraeus told the intelligence committee that he knew from the beginning that the attack was the work of terrorists, not protesters. >> he thought all along, he made it clear, that there was significant terrorist involvement. >> reporter: but that's not what the white house was saying, including u.s. ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, who went on television days after the attack, tying it to protests in egypt against an anti-muslim video. but petraeus also told lawmakers that by the time declassified talking points were given to the white house and congress, references to al qaeda were edited ou
